Drew Brees and just one day before the crash which was seen on the green with former NBA star Dwyane Wade I say. The goal is not called the witty but governed solely to go by with his guy right here men. On T and T overnight wait says. Shaken by the news so soon after sharing the links with woods I picked up the golf club like meaning in a black community because the tiger wouldn't. I got an opportunity yesterday to get out there and you know he taught me a few things woods won his first major toward a minute 21. Eighteen. Now tied for the most PGA wins over 820. Clear for the ages but a person. Who sometimes seem troubled in 2009 after allegations of a cheating scandal broke he smashed his SUV near his home in Florida. And his marriage fell apart. I am deeply sorry. From my irresponsible. And selfish behavior. Dating 2017 while dealing with pain and multiple surgeries he was found by police passed out. Behind the wheel of his car and arrested on a do you like Joseph march. In other no I didn't have enough. It's because you're you're stuck in the road. Within 2019. M unbelievable comeback. Tiger would win his fifth Masters Tournament celebrating with his son. No with the future of the gold star in question messages of support and pouring in including from close friend and competitor Justin Thomas. I mean I am sick to my stomach. You know it hurts.

Surgery now interestingly LA county's fire chief told us that. When he first arrived on the scene it's in the tiger tiger was trying to extricate himself. From the vehicle he realized the crash was bad. Was lucid he was calm but he may not have realized at that time the severity. This injuries Diane Ryan Mack. Tuchman thank you Matt. And USA today national sports columnist Christine Brennan joins me now from more Christine cover tiger for a long time you know him better than most. Do you think he'll come back from this not even necessarily as a golfer but just as a person. And I remembered. Count Tiger Woods out of any. And I know people are wondering about all day and it was their chance he could returns. Of course I think that's the wrong question to be asking you know let's hope there's a chance that he can ma and so that he is able to kick a soccer Rollins is starters damage and watch his son Charlie play a round of golf and yeah that's that's where tiger is right now it he will come back. With rehab and whatever he can do with a vengeance test that's tigers is drip and he is focused. He is a perfectionist. And we must act. Develop in front of our eyes and over the last 25 years or so Owens and that won't change. The question is what is he coming there are you gonna come back to golf or is he going to come back. Oakley to a normal life and I think they're right now that should be conversation. About getting back to some sense of normalcy. But tiger will throw himself into this as he is armed himself and everything has done 100. Percent you know yesterday we were talking about the crash and another commentator add on. So that he has nothing to his golf fans at this point is he has left his legacy I'm regardless and as you said you know we can't. Count him out he has made it amazing comebacks of orbit if this is the end of his competitive golfing career. Talk a little bit about that legacy that he leaves behind. What's extraordinary tying and it you know Jack Nicklaus Tiger Woods' agent can't as the greatest all time. And he would be remembered aqueduct in nineteen masters in almost eight years ago now the first time it has started his son actually be at the eighteenth green watching him win melting into his arms in a big embrace after right after you won that masters and each that was improbable victory because just two years or that was that Eli that urge you rush and that that did dreadful dash cam video is Friday asked. And course the mug shot so that was when he seventy memorial weekend and then. That you years later is when in the master. This is that that happy ending. What we checked out now of course is something in his own troubling and concerning and and US that's for tiger of course she and his family. Org all and then you know he he's still is 45 so there's no there's this second or third or if that number tiger is whatever that I'd be. And one would assume and I'll Foundation's charitable work as well as well as his kids show. I'm I. Questions as you mentioned you know clearly this is our premier. And it you describe some of his challenges and it but every single one people really rallied behind him in just root. For that come back I'll be it's a golfer just for tiger in general but. On that no we've seen so many people reaching out on social media offering him Freres offering support for his family wishing you missed eighty recovery. Why do you think he's had such an impact on people. It was really one of the first not the First Act a person of color. And to play golf and certainly to explain below in late and you broke barriers and that was riveting. And because he was your. When your soul winning the masters in 1990s. And a career that started early putting his shoe was on the Mike Douglas show any golf ball. And I know that Bob Hope and Jimmy Stewart watching him. As a net national audience is amused and delighted to see this young year old hitting golf also. He's been in our consciousness and in the national spotlight his life. And I think that we have been. Awed by his is probably is right. Is. It just absolutely competitive nature and has this strive for perfection in everything he does. What is art are on the golf course and tiger but also only has ever been more on tighter when a message that is for young kids. And whether they're studying a record are acting and school player whether they're athletes and and so I think the combination of great yes. And also be the uniqueness. Of an unwilling minds tour. Tiger Woods crash landed in and that's where analysts and took about her and I think a lot of our results anti parents and I hate I can do that you just a glass ceiling an island I'm gonna join you whether it's young woman of color on a buoyant color. Of course or. Our even just women in this order golf the opportunity did you something that basically. The message of Tiger Woods and is fresher Christine Brennan thank you so much.

At preventing deaths even against the highly contagious south African beer yet. All three vaccines help the body developed immunity to the virus that causes cove in nineteen without having to get the illness but there are differences.

Early a year into a pandemic we RD have vaccines in lower income countries that is a huge a deal tickle. It is you teach you heard. Just how impressive. I regret passivity did in terms of what really matters to and saw a short some truckers are. I'm absolutely deserves either records that paper start to materialize we can't understate. But I just inequitable distribution is the moment. And there isn't really massive or action that ring sort of put things. In angers veterans and order yet accidents where it needs to be in no written there's. Should as a Brennan broke down some of those numbers stressed he says at that the current number is up vaccines in countries that wealthy nations can -- say every single member population. And there weren't still in more than one point two billion doses left over so and now branded and the one campaign other campaigns as well XY developed nations are linked to donate money to fund things like comebacks but also donate. Some of the excess vaccine so this is going to be a huge push we're gonna see more of going forward and. Thank Maggie really forests in London thanks Maggie. Let's bring an epidemiologist and ABC's medical contributor doctor John Brownstein for more on this doctor Brownstein why is called acts as vaccine distributions on or. Yeah I mean this is really great news and he opens a this point in over a hundred countries that have yet to receive a single dose of this vaccine yet know that he's roll out in this country is incredibly fast so called sister being credible or make sure that low and middle income countries are getting their hour. This is a sign that the rule out is how the article still aren't aren't it's an amazing example. Other countries are going to get our. Local candidates are glow launch an effort to get out of the end Aaron. These vaccines have called it is include Baxter incredible job lead yet it's about.
